Beautiful soundboard - first set is all Bobby, as Jer has trouble with a couple of tunes here and there lyrically. Dancin' is absolutely ***tight***, and all of Bob's tunes have something wonderful going for them - check that monster Let it Grow...

2nd set has it dialled completely in. Scarlet > Fire is, as you expect, an absolute wow, and you'll be totally grinning when this thing finishes. The previous night was probably the better-played show, but this one delivers for sheer emotion. ANYONE who doubts the integrity of '85 should put on this board, right here.

Brutal 1st set until Let It Grow, then you have to stomach Keep Your Day Job. 2nd set is nice. Merriweather is brutal unless you have a seat in the Pav.
